south coast teas
All examples here use a teabag in a mug with hotwater poured onto the bag. The first photograph is in the kithcen of a Portsmouth home. Using a pint of semi-skimmed milk from Asda and a mug featuring St Georges cross in front of a glass electric kettle.
This is on a beach in Cornwall near Cawsand. 3 mugs of tea and two mugs of chocolate for the short people. An inovative water-boiling-on-the-beach contraption helped ensure the water was the right temperature for tea brewing. Once the tea had brewed sausage sandwiches were made then we finished off with another cup of tea. The perfect way to start and wrap-up a hike to the beach.
This is from home in Bristol. It’s the pre-breakfast table at 7am, my first, second and third cuppa of the day normally come from this productive little pot. That is cup number 2 and I’m about to refill the pot with fresh tea for the biddies as they start to wake up and potter about.
